    I suspect the press is blowing it out of proportion like the SARS virus. The people infected is much higher than reported, and the vast majority are surviving it fine. The symptoms are similar to a bad case of the flu and leaving people open for the complications of pneumonia.

    That was one of my thoughts also. I am also wondering if the pneumonia vaccine can prevent the more serious complications.

    I can almost be positive it is. Just like the FLU and everything else. Media cares about 1 thing and 1 thing only. RATINGS. Doesn't matter if it's accurate, if it makes you watch, if they get the info out first, that's the only thing scum bag journalist care about. Journalist in my eyes are no better than a lying addict. Anything to get their fix in the journalist case, ratings. They are willing to scare the public into something just to report more. They make a few deaths seem like an epidemic. Like everything else this Corona virus will pass. Till then, I'm going to go crack open a Corona and have a lime.

    Speed doesn't kill you. It's the sudden stop. That's what gets you.

    Sir, if you ask that question to many times you could reduce the world population down to about half its current amount.

    Way too many people see that question as a challenge and a dare.

    I agree with a lot of your premise, however I'll hold my final verdict for a few weeks to see the growth and spread geographically of this virus. I will note that the stock market is getting jittery .. not sure if that's a human response or if the computers (Skynet) is selling off. Probably a buying opportunity and that makes me wonder if there's other manipulation going on.

    Anyone want a good read about the corona virus here is the stuff off WebMD. Also, I really wish the media when talking about the deaths from the Corona virus tell us about where these deaths are mainly occurring and who it is killing. It's in many places with bad health care or no access to health care. It's hardly a problem for most Americans. This stuff wouldn't be plastered all over the news if they actually delivered the full story about where the fatalities are occurring and what not. Just like SARS and whatever else is the hot button to get people to tune in. The biggest thing that I have noticed is when there is nothing to really report it seems that the media just starts stirring stuff up to plaster across the country. To many people buy into it.

    The good news just keeps on coming. They now suspect that this virus can be communicable even before symptoms show. So much for temperature screening inbound passengers.

    The goofy stock market is selling off like it is 9/11 all over again.
